Don’t Let Pain Reduce the Quality of Your Life! Deal With the cause the Ayurveda Way!!
A tear or a crack in the thin lining of the anus is known as anal fissure. The crack in the skin can cause severe pain and bleeding during and after bowel movements. At times, the fissure can be deep enough to expose the muscle tissue.
Anal fissures are very common in young infants but then again, it can affect people of any age.
Causes of Anal Fissure
Fissures or tears are often thought to be caused by the overstretching of the anal mucosa beyond its normal capacity. This often happens when stools are hard due to constipation.
Once the tear happens, it causes muscle spasm in the anal sphincter muscle (muscles around your anus). This pulls apart the edges of the fissure furthermore. The spasm also reduces the blood supply to the area, thereby making it harder for the fissure to heal. This cycle, leads to the development of a chronic anal fissure.
Factors that may increase your risk of developing an anal fissure include:
- Constipation that makes you strain to pass hard stool.
- Prolonged diarrhea can cause an anal fissure to develop.
- Pregnancy or Childbirth can put pressure on your perineum (the area between your anus and vulva).
- Inflammatory bowel disease causes chronic inflammation of the intestinal tract, which may make the lining of the anal canal more vulnerable to tearing e.g. Crohn’s disease.
- Trauma to your anus through anal sex or through surgery.
Symptoms of anal fissure
Symptoms of anal fissure may include:
- Pain during and after a bowel movement that can last for hours
- A visible tear or crack in the skin around your anus
- Streaks of bright red blood on stools or on the toilet paper after wiping.
Complications of anal fissure
Complications seen with anal fissures include:
- Pain, bleeding and discomfort
- The fissure fails to heal, requiring surgery
- Tear extends to the surrounding muscles
- Reduced quality of life
If an anal fissure does not heal on time, it’s possible for the tear to get infected. However, with proper treatment, anal fissures typically do not become infected.
Fissure usually isn’t a serious condition. However, recurring anal fissures or the ones that don’t readily heal can be cause for concern.
An anal fissure that lasts more than six weeks is a cause of concern. It is considered as chronic and may need proper medical intervention.
Anal fissures do not cause colon cancer or increase your risk of getting colon cancer. However, people with colon cancer are likely to develop anal fissures.
